The time has been extended until the 7th of this month to give an explanation to the vice chancellors.

For the first time in the state’s history, the governor’s government is going to the point of questioning whether the prime minister is ready to step down. The Governor asked the Prime Minister to prove that he had nominated an RSS person in the Raj Bhavan. He can resign if he proves the political nomination. If not, will the CM resign?
The prime minister’s office was accused of connivance in gold smuggling. The Prime Minister’s office intervenes in illegal appointments. The governor asked how the prime minister’s office was contacted regarding all illegal activities. Referring to Swapna Suresh’s book and the action against M. Sivashankar, the Governor warned that he would not hesitate to move against the Prime Minister’s office to ensure the rule of law.
The deputy chancellors were not asked to pay back their salaries. The time has been extended until the 7th of this month to give an explanation. Those who want to explain directly will have an opportunity. Only then decide the course of action. When Minister KN Balagopal delivered a speech challenging the integrity of the country, he expressed his displeasure to the Prime Minister.
There was no intention of firing the minister. Not just the governor’s office, everyone has a Lakshmana Rekha. He intervened only constitutionally. The governor also said PCM central leaders are assessing KN Balagopal’s speech will cause fatigue to the PCM nationwide. The governor also criticized the atmosphere of fear in Kerala during the Pinarayi regime.
